The Lava-Jato investigation and the governmental instability in Latin America. Toward a new pattern of the parliamentary control over the Presidents?

  • Jacopo Paffarini

Abstract

Anti-corruption investigations have always been one of the main causes of political crises in Latin America. However, the last episodes of presidential removal have shown a new activism of the parliaments, which have re-interpreted the constitutional provisions on impeachment proceedings in order to legitimize a change in the governmental agenda. This practice affects the balance between the two representative powers, as it fails to observe the limits of the presidential accountability and paves the way to new instabilities.


Keywords: Coalitional Presidentialism; Presidential Accountability; Anti-corruption investigations; Lava-Jato; Impeachment.
